I'm a teacher by day, a writer & home cook by night. I love to meet people, to travel to places for the faces and food. When I visit somewhere, I usually don't plan all that much, and the spontaneous experiences that I've had as a result have been the most memorable. I love Peru, and I hope to return one day soon for an extended visit. Next up on my list of places to see are Taiwan, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand. I can live without a lot of things, but I wouldn't want to go too long without a place to cook or a pen and paper to write.
